Stop with the sport analogies already..

Keith Olberman is back to The Debate III with his own Bloggerman "boxing" account of the last match.Bush is crushed by his final score: Kerry 12 rounds, Bush 4 round, and 4 rounds were fought to a stand still. With final adjusted points: Kerry 18, Bush 3.

Salon hits a Homerun with Bush out after Strike Three! or "Kerry Sweeps the Series."

My personal favorite was this thrust towards the end of the encounter:
KERRY: Well, I guess the president and you and I are three examples of lucky people who married up.


And some would say maybe me moreso than others.


But I can take it.


While Bush looked disarmed not getting the joke at his expense*, Kerry with a smile skewered the criticism that he is a dominated or henpecked husband. That was a perfect use of the French Technique: hit fast and so smooth that the other doesn't know he has been insulted.

*Bush failing to assume the mantle of "The Great Communicator" will now be known as, "she speaks English a lot better than I do."
